General Description

This 15-hour-over-16-weeks ONLINE guided learning journey is for high school & middle school teachers who are keen to supplement their classroom teaching with quality, online, collaborative units. Enter this video testimonial link: bit.do/collabvidtestimonial (Maths teachers need to seek out the more specific ‘Create and Trial a Flipped Maths Unit’ course.)
This is a ‘doing’ experiential course. We assume you already know the advantages of supplementing your classroom teaching with quality, comprehensive online units. Therefore, the focus of the course is on guiding and supporting you to create quality, online units, based on social learning principles, which promote collaboration and inquiry. You will source videos from the web, learn to create quality videos & deliver them via ‘the cloud’, create a quality online unit, trial it with students & report back on your implementation experience. Importantly, the process of navigating the overwhelming number of decisions re software, hardware, platform, Mac/PC/tablet, etc. is greatly simplified.
In order to model the delivery of quality social-online-learning units, an exceptional online platform is required. This course features one such platform – Open Learning – which you may use at no cost. However, you are free to use any platform you choose. Many tutorials are provided across several options. The presenter’s 4000+ hours of experience with creating online units shines through the course.
This TEAM model capitalises on ‘at school’ collaboration between colleagues. Enter this TEAM info link: tta.edu.au/go/teams
Cost: $900 +GST for 1-or-2 people; Extras: $450pp +GST. ‘Perfect Pair’ deal: 2 people to both this course & ‘Create an engaged learning environment with your students’ ($1700 for 2ppl for 2 courses)
The December date enables the course to be completed during the Christmas holidays, finishing mid Term 1.
This is an upgrade of the course ‘Create Collaborative, online Units to support your classroom’.

Format Description

This format is designed for TEAMS of teachers because, given the large number of options of software and hardware across varying costs and the number of decisions which need to be made when first creating an online collaborative unit, participants ideally need to collaborate with another colleague face-to-face. Hence the $900 for 1 or 2 people pricing structure. More advantageous is the option to enrol all teachers of a school wanting to create online units. (Maths teachers: google the course Create and trial a Flipped Mathematics Unit) IMPORTANT NOTE: The temptation is to enrol 2 people into the course and “Have them teach the rest of us”. It doesn’t work. A couple of hours showing skills face to face is incomparable to completing this comprehensive 4-month guided learning journey.


This course contributes to 15.0 professional development hours.
